Which card is better for gaming, 6770 or 5830 (i will be overclocking, so please take this into consideration, yet I won't increase voltage), I do realize 5830 takes a lot of juice and needs a good psu to keep it cool, so I would also like to know of a cheap psu that can run 5830 (non voltage overclocked) and a reccomended 1 for the 6770 as well.

More about : 6770 5830

Being that the 6770 is just ar ebranded 5770 the 5830 is better. Depending on your budget we might be able to find you better. What is your budget and current specs and maybe we can help ya out a bit.

Well I was only interested in 6770 cuz it was in a combo deal. How about the sapphire 5830 for 110

The 5830 is 12% faster than the 6770(5770) but it consumes 50watts more.It's not very eco friendly but it is slighty faster.

Although the 6770 is the newer version of the 5770 and yes they are the same speeds but the 6770 is better at tesselation than both the 5770 and 5830.

What combo deal did you see with the 6770?

We need to know your budget for both the PSU and GPU.Can't suggest a PSU unless I have a budget.

Im a complete noob I dont know what tesselation does 4 graphics, is it related to geometry, because I know what that tesselation is.

lol-its more like a re-badged 5770 bro! its only the drivers that help with the tessellation

they use the same drivers.......

My fault then.I just assumed all the 6xxx series cards would naturally better at tesselation and crossfire scaling.So you mean to say that the 6770 scales the same as the 5770 in crossfire?

yeap bro, cos its the same chip on the same PCB - the only thing differenet about the 6770 is that it has a 100~200MHz heightened clock speed. Its the same story as the G92(i think) chips from Nvidia - in reality die shrunk 8series cards



I'd also advise the OP to stay away from the 5830 - it might seem like a good buy at first with its prices, but you didn't read the fine print ; the 5830 has the same PCB and power delivery as the other 58xx cards and thus has the same power draw as a 5850 so price/performance/power ratio is a total fail. AMD wanted to reuse the chips that were being binned and they came up with the 5830. BTW, the same goes for a 6790 - total fail in that department.

All in all get the 5770 and you can manually OC the speeds in the performance tab in catalyst.

*6000 series cards should've been good as they were about 3D on an eyefinity setup. The 6770=5770=only eyefinity

a higher clock speed from both 6770 cards could give a slight lead against 2x5770 - maybe

with the release of each driver, they are actually decreasing the number of elements to tessellate/process, thus the cards SEEM to run smoother e.g: with Crysis 2 is that initially with my 6870 BE on catalyst 11.3~4, i had to do an overclock to QX9770 specs and get a good experience. Now with 11.5, i don't need the OC. The drivers are being written in such a way that old and new AMD cards can process the same game Nvidia cards previously dominated(due to physx and its architecture) thus the drivers are toning "down" the game features to help AMD cards process better. Same goes for H.A.W.X 2
